Holiday Inn Sandton, Rivonia Road

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Since my last visit one year ago, I feel that the hotel lacks of maintenance in the details .. Still a good value, but management should work on small things ( missing handle on the lavabo, sharp edges on the desk due to loosening lamination, etc ).

This was a family stay for one night in 2 interleading rooms, during a vacation trip. After a long flight from Asia, the check-in took forever, and three staff were needed to figure out our booking on the computer, despite all booking references being provided. Barring this frustrating start, the rest went smoothly - the rooms are large (we had a view of a construction site next door, but didn't matter for a night), comfy large beds, well-stocked amenities, and a great buffet breakfast spread, manned by courteous & helpful restaurant staff. Wifi worked fine, but that was after some frustrating wrong login guidance by the helpdesk. Within a kilometre of Nelson Mandela Square, which provided several dinner options across cuisines.

I really recommend this hotel. The staff is very friendly and the costumer service excellent! The breakfast is great and the restaurant serves also in the evening delicious food. I am looking forward to stay next time in Joburg and come back to Holiday Inn.

The thing I will remember most about my most recent stay at the holiday inn Rivonia street, sandton is the sleep quality ....apart from the delightful and friendly staff i can't get over the amazingly comfortable bed ....will be back soon

If you fancy having a singing chef in the morning then stay here! A great omellet cooked by a singing chef... wonderful... service all round was great and the shuttle bus very convenient to Mandela Square. rooms a little dated but no issues at all great stay !

Stayed here for 3 nights while on holiday with friends and family. The rooms are typical for a HI property. The breakfast was good and the property was newish. My only real complaint was when I was checking-in. The person at check-in was cold and was not welcoming at all. FYI: There's a free shuttle to the nearby mall and the surrounding offices

Stay at Holiday Inn Rivonia road and service so so slow and takes forever to get anything done. Unable to get CNN on TV as channels not programmed to include it. Room service comes on tray and not on proper room service trolley which you can use to dine on it. Arrive and concierge dont bother come and ask to help with your bag he will wait inside until you reach checkin counter than comes and ask if you need help. Nobody smiles from the hospitality team of the hotel. Reach after long tiering flight and want to order room service and no hard copies it is embedded in TV channels so by time you figure it out and found the menu 1 hour gone and you are more and more starving. Lots and loads of improvement needed for this hotel to be IHG hotel. Thanks & Best Regards Joseph

The hotel is located at a place that hardly has any restaurants in close is decent with cosy peaceful rooms.No water bottles in rooms ???Not nice.staff is courteous and very helpful.breakfast not very happy.

Very strategic location for business traveler. Close to Nelson Mandela Square, Financial Centre and Metro Station. The room is clean and comfortable but a little bit old. The service need to improve especially at the restaurant.

The hotel is welcoming, clean and comfortable. We had a good sized room with the expected amenities. The hotel is a short walk from the Conference Centre in Sandton (and Nelson Mandela Square), and also has its own conference rooms. Tours can pick up guests without problems. The restaurant menu was a little limited, but the quality was excellent.
